COTTONWOOD – Mother and daughter team Rosalie Davidson and Bonnie Grant opened Cork & Catch July 11 at 1750 E. Villa Dr. The concept of this restaurant might be new to Cottonwood, but their roots are well established.
The family opened Rosalie’s Bluewaters Inn in Cottonwood in 1991. Then in 2003 they opened Rosalie’s of Sedona, a full-service catering company.
Now they are offering what they see as a new approach in Cottonwood.
“Cork & Catch is our latest concept, coming full circle back in our hometown, combining old favorites with new ideas,” said Bonnie.
The restaurant presents a unique cuisine inspired by American, Southwestern and South American foods. The menu also recommends a wine pairing for each item.
Cork & Catch is serving lunch and dinner and a weekly brunch and lunch on Sunday. The business will also serve private parties, rehearsal dinners, corporation lunches and other occasions.
“We plan on serving not only our Verde Valley locals but also people from all around the country visiting the Verde Valley area,” Bonnie said. “Cork & Catch is unique because it offers a gourmet dining experience off the beaten path.”
She said that the restaurant features, every weekend, fresh and unique seafood options and hand-cut steaks, such as their famous prime rib. In addition, Cork & Catch offers hand-selected wine pairings and infusion drinks.
The restaurant employs about 15 to 18 people.
“We have an amazing culinary team and exceptionally friendly and professional servers,” Bonnie said.
She expects the business to grow rapidly.
“We believe the Verde Valley is entering a wine and food renaissance that we are extremely excited to be a part of,” she said.
Hours are 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
